Missing Detroit barber David Woodger has been found dead

Missing Detroit barber David Woodger has been found dead, according to family.

David's sisters confirmed with FOX 2 that her brother's remains were found but did not share details. 

46-year-old David Woodger was last seen on July 21, 2022, leaving his barber shop on Seven Mile between Ryan and Mound. He was headed home but never made it.

David is married and has three children and a large extended family. He and his brother Winfred operate barbershops in Detroit, central Florida, and Accra, Ghana, which is in Africa.

His wife, Piper Reynolds, also confirmed his death on Facebook.

"Yesterday was one of the hardest days of my life, I received a phone call from the police informing me that the DNA results came back indicating that my husband, David is no longer with us," Piper wrote. "Please continue to pray for us during this difficult time."

In August 2022, Detroit police said in a press conference they received a tip about human remains found in a burned out home on Goddard Street in Detroit. A friend of David was also considered a suspect in his death.

Police say DNA results they received five months later confirmed it was the body of David, but they declined to share additional details on the case. 

There is a GoFundMe page set up by the family HERE.
